I am looking for any information establishing that the maiden name of Catherine, wife of Thomas J. Menees, was in fact Binkley. I understand that her maiden name comes from oral tradition but would welcome any further information.
Thomas and Catherine Menees lived in Robertson Co., TN, until the 1850's, when they moved to Dade Co., MO, where Thomas died. In 1870 Catherine moved to Grayson or Fannin County, TX, where she died and is buried. Because she is buried in the same cemetery as David Binkley, son of Jacob Binkey and Barbara Damewood, she is believed to be his sister.
